Mistake of the Cleaning of Rattan Sofa
It is wrong to use a wet cloth when cleaning the dirt on the rattan sofa, because its water stains will firmly absorb the dirt in crevices between the rattans, producing a counterproductive effect. In this way, the rattan sofa may look clean on the surface, but it actually hides the dirt in deep and hard-to-reach areas.

The following are some correct cleaning methods:

  1. Use a dry cloth or feather duster to wipe some dust from the inside out.
  2. Use a small household vacuum cleaner to clean the crevices of the rattan sofa thoroughly.
  3. Use a soft bristle brush like a toothbrush to gently wipe away the remaining dust in the crevices.
  4. Wipe the rattan sofa thoroughly with a slightly damp cloth.
  5. After the surface of the rattan soft is air-dried, sand it with sandpaper to keep it as smooth as new.
  6. Finally, apply a thin layer of oil, then let it air-dry in a cool place.
